I am so sorry to hear about your loss – thank you for sharing. You have been with your husband for such a long time, and it must be very challenging not having him around. I can imagine you feel immense grief and overwhelm -sounds like at times it is getting to a point where you wish you didn’t have to live anymore either. While this is not an uncommon thought after losing someone so close, I am concerned about your wellbeing. Please know that there is support available to help you through this. Griefline’s phone support is available Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm (AEST), and you can also book a call for the weekend. Lifeline (phone 13 11 14) is available 24/7 if you need to talk to someone urgently. You do no need to go through this alone.
It takes courage to reach out and share, and I thank you for showing that courage. I have lost my partner earlier this year, and I know how important it is to have support on that journey of grief.
Take care – thinking of you.
